Cause I CAN

I have nothing to add here except to say that this thread inspires me.

I've read many message boards about running after hip replacement with conflicting reports. So, I decided to tell me story in hopes that people that love running who have had hip replacement can see how others do. If you have had replacement surgery please shares your experiences so I can learn as well.
I had bilateral hip replacement back in 1998 and this year I decided to run distances again. This year, thru May 27, 2010, I’ve run 400 miles, I ran the ING ½ marathon and currently training for the Peachtree while still maintaining long runs on weekends. I WILL run the Space Coast marathon in November. If you are interested in reading more about my story go to www.ChristianMilers.org and select the "Distance Running after Bilateral Hip Replacement" link on the right hand column under the "Recent post" heading.
And I was in a bad mood because I had to take a few days off. I am worthless and whiny.

There's an older guy I run with on occasion who has had both hips replaced. He still runs (I think marathons too). He used to be a 2:30 or faster marathoner, back in the day, but now he's quite a bit slower, but still doing it. FWIW.
I don't know any of his details relating to the hips, other than he had them replaced.
HTFU? Why not!

Yo can still run, our neighbor here has had a double hip implant and does running 3-4 days a week. She's in a good fit. Don't worry to much about it.
